Bryan Singer Confirms Bishop and Warpath Will Be in X-Men: Days of Future Past

Bishop Comic Book

Man, I hope Bryan Singer’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past” is like 3 hours long, because if it’s anything shorter than that, we might be getting one-scene-and-done with all of these mutant characters that will be showing up in the film.

With most of the cast of Matthew Vaughn’s “X-Men: First Class” already scheduled to show up, along with the major characters from Singer’s own “X-Men” trilogy, you can now add the futuristic mutant badass Bishop (that’s him with the big “M” on his face above) and the Native American Warpath to your list of mutants scheduled to wreck havoc in “DOFP”.

How do we know the two mutants will be showing up? Well, Singer recently tweeted this:

Bishop is Lucas Bishop, a mutant from the future who traveled back in time to become an important member of the X-Men in the present. Given the time-traveling storyline of “DOFP”, his presence in the movie was always a possibility. And now, a certainty.

Warpath, meanwhile, is James Proudstar, a member of the X-Men offshoot team New Mutants (then later, X-Force) and is an Apache Native American. I have no idea how he’s going to fit into “DOFP”.

Besides Bishop and Warpath (below), there’s also someone name “Blink” that will be appearing in “DOFP”, but I’ve never heard of him. Apparently the chairs for the stars on the set of “X-Men: Days of Future Past” are assigned by the name of the characters they’re playing. That’s a new one.

    +1 for bishop. He’s kicks so much ass. I wonder who they got playing him.

    • Juggernaut

      Omar Sy (a French actor most notably from the film The Intouchables) will be playing Bishop and Booboo Stewart (The Twilight Saga) as Warpath and Fan Bingbing in the role of Blink.

    Blink is a girl. And She’s a teleporter.

  • Juggernaut

    I figured that we’d be getting Bishop but I have no idea how they plan on fitting Warpath in! Blink is an interesting addition. I suppose that they need another teleporter in the mix and with neither Azazel or Nightcrawler returning to the fold she fit the bill. Can’t wait for more news on the movie!

    Okay this has become Days of Future Past of the Age of Apocalypse!! LOL. Crazy cast, and I’m just going to stop speculating on stuff now cause it’s all too much! Love the casting though.

    I think Blink is a girl, and she had something to do with Age of Apocalypse arc.

    Seems like way too many characters once again for this series. Was nothing learned from X-men 3???
